This was with the Fuji 56mm. Lovely for head and shoulder portraits. I used to use canons 85/1.2. They have similar properties, I find. Ok the canon on a full frame had less depth of field but the Fuji one isn't bad at throwing backgrounds out of focus. I sold the canon 85 for the 100L macro in the end. I found that more to my liking. And with Fuji I think I also prefer the 90mm to the 56mm 9 times out of 10.

I don't see any reason relating to lenses not to move from canon to Fuji (unless you want specialist stuff like fast long primes or tilt shifts). The problems with Fuji are more with the processing, which some people but not everyone seem to struggle with, or the AF. I am sure the later bodies are better but the xt1 is slower than the best dslrs. Doesn't really affect my style of shooting though so I am perfectly happy.
For me, simply put the main difference is just FF Vs crop. X-Trans does tender differently but this is only an issue if you pixel peep really, and maybe if you print really big. Fuji lenses are nice, the AF is decent and in good light you get way more keepers as mirrorless is just damn accurate. DSLR definitely has the edge in initial acquisition, but due to the tech you will also get those out of focus shots... I really like my 5D4 but I'm edging towards keeping the Fuji setup over the Canon... The 35mm on FF and the Canon 70-200 mkII are why I'm still hanging on to the Canon gear...

Apparently the XT-20 can use Eye-AF in continuous but I'm not sure if that's true or not.
If so I'm expecting Fuji to enable it on the XT-2 via a firmware upgrade.
It's useable but no way as good as the Sony A7RII's Eye-AF abilities, hopefully Fuji improve it as it's one of the very few things I miss about the A7RII :)
I've seen that posted on FM. I still way prefer normal single point AF over FD. I've only used the Sony in a shop, but it still was slower than just using normal AF. FD for me is a tech that shines for video more than still photography.

Upon importing my first batch of photos from xt2 to LR, all the photos have gone into the library in a random order which is making the work flow a PITA.

I've not changed settings since my previous import from other cameras. Any ideas?

At the bottom of the window there is an option called sort. If you change this to capture time, this should order them into the sequence your pics were taken.
Not sure if this is what you were asking though.

The "DR" is a Dover registration. Beer comes (IIRC) under "EX" for Exeter and is probably a bit far for a relatively small boat to be from home.

Love the colours, composition etc..
They don't have to be registered at their home port. You can buy a boat along with its registration (for a price!) and keep its number. Even small boats fish around the coast. This site http://www.padstow-harbour.co.uk/fishing_boat_reg_codes.pdf gives all the codes. When I worked for the Scottish Fisheries at Oban (west coast) it was common to have "strangers" fishing from our port and equally Oban boats fishing, say, Whitby on the east coast.

Is anybody using the Nisin i60A with their "Air" wireless system?

From what I have read, this allows you to have multiple OCF with TTL, is that right?
Yes - works really well - I have three flashes - all can be used OC with TTL.. Unfortunately no HSS yet - but it is promised soon.

Okay. Is anyone successfully using a CPL with the Fuji 10-24mm? Have a trip to Glen Coe soon and wondering whether to bother as am well aware of the issue with using polarisers on a UWA.

Cheers

Just testing the distance scale on the xt1, it's way out! Not even useful as a guide.

OK, so I lied. I may have a shot or two more from Pembrokeshire :). This was a pain to process because the light was quite bright (the only time in my entire trip!) and I didn't use a polariser to control the reflections off the rocks. But it turned out OK eventually...

"Cracking" shot Sir, well composed, great sky, and spot on mono PP work giving a good puchy full range of tones with detail in the highlights & shadows.(y)

Finally got out with the X-T20 this morning and tested the Samyang 12mm out.

Crikey, the detail that X-T20 captures is something else! (nice shots by the way)

I've spent some time with the X-T10 today, and having got used to the smaller size, reckon I now have an upgrade path to the X-T20 at some point. So much camera for relatively little.

Its a great camera, doesn't have all the bells and whistles that the XT2 has but it has most things and once you set it up to how you want it its no problem having the missing dials . For my needs its enough and the shadows and highlights you can pull back is amazing.

I am really fancying one of these as an upgrade from my XT-1 - what do you reckon?

I had a play with the t20 on Saturday. It's less of a difference than what i was expecting compared to my t1. I would find it very difficult to justify the t2 premium.

Thanks Graham, perhaps it's a good place to stop then! We shall see... :) Your shot is a real beauty though, not like my unnatural weirdness :D

Thanks George, very kind. I must admit it's been a surprise to me on this trip to discover just how many of my beach images look better in mono. This one has come out quite eerie, I think, but it's a look I like...

All are great, but I particularly like the middle two. I really must get to grips with the 12mm and learn to use it. To that end, I've ordered a UV filter for the front, as I was a bit reticent about exposing that big front element to sea spray down on the beach. Maybe that will help, we'll see :) I'm also going to acquire a 16mm equivalent (manual 24mm plus focal reducer) when I can, as experiments this weekend comparing the Pentax K 28mm 3.5 to my 18-55 kit (the prime narrowly wins) have convinced me that my concerns about focal reducers being unsuitable for landscape work are unfounded, at least by my current standards. I won't post the shots here, as as they are very dull, but I will be duplicating the test "in the field" when I can, and happy to report further if people are interested.
